Learn how to build FrontPage Web Sites from the ground up. This course will teach you everything from the basics of Web page creation all the way up to the more advanced features. The course consists of FOUR (4), one-hour sessions. Registration for all four classes is only $34

Why Microsoft FrontPage? There are a growing number of companies and professionals who are finding out that it is more cost effective to develop and maintain their Web Site in-house than it is to have an outside firm do so. Not only can they keep their costs lower, but they maintain complete control over their site, and can make changes and modifications as needed. FrontPage is a very powerful tool, yet is easy to learn. If you can write a letter in Word, you can build a Web site in FrontPage.

Who should attend? Anyone who is looking to learn how to organize, develop, and maintain a custom web site for their organization, or anyone who is interested in developing web sites as a profession. This course is designed for the non-computer professional who has a firm working knowledge of computers, is familiar with the World Wide Web, and is proficient with word processing (such as with Microsoft Word). No prior web development experience is necessary.

What will be covered? We will develop an entire web site for a fictional company. We will show you the basics of how to edit a web page with FrontPage, how to include advanced FrontPage components such as hit counters, reply forms, and discussion forums. We will teach you how to edit your web pages using HTML. We will also teach you how to market and promote your web site to increase your traffic. For more information on what is covered, see below for the complete course outline.

Where will the course be held? Wherever you are! That's the best thing about online courses - you can learn from the comfort of your home or office. All you need is a Web browser and Windows Media Player, which is a free download from Microsoft if it's not already installed on your computer (and it probably is).

When is the course held? This is an Open Enrollment course, which means you can sign on to our Web site any time you want to watch the course videos when it's convenient for you. This is perfect for the busy executive, employees who want to take class after work hours, or the student on the go. You can also download the course, or have it mailed to you on CD-ROM.

How much is registration, and what do I get? The cost is only $34  per student (quantity discounts available, please call). Registration includes enrollment for the six-session course and a downloadable, 150+ page workbook outlining everything taught in class.

Why Amicron? Why should you trust Amicron for your online training? We have been providing classroom-based training since 1994. We don't just cover the material in some off-the-shelf textbook. We have written all of our own course materials and we know what you need to learn from practical experience. Every computer training company will say this, but we really mean it: our instructors are true experts. We're not just teachers who know computers. We're computer programmers, database developers, and technicians who teach. 

Who is the instructor? Richard Rost is the instructor for this course. He is a self-taught computer programmer, database developer, and web designer by trade. Richard started his career in computer training working in the technical support industry. He was in charge of training computer technicians to help customers solve their problems over the phone. From there, Richard founded Amicron Technology Services in 1994. When he's not teaching, he's building Access database solutions for clients nationwide. He also builds web sites and online databases.

Student Interaction: Microsoft FrontPage Seminar

Richard on 1/1/2007:  Learn how to build FrontPage Web Sites from the ground up. This course will teach you everything from the basics of Web page creation all the way up to the more advanced features. The course consists of FOUR (4), one-hour sessions.
leroy on 2/18/2008: how do you hyperlink in the same page like if you have thing further down the page instead of scrolling down click on a word to go to that particular part in the page.
Richard Rost on 2/28/2008: You can insert a BOOKMARK in your page (Insert > Bookmark) and then hyperlink to that bookmark. I cover this in Frontpage 102, lesson 4.
leroy diaz on 3/5/2008: you know i just put a web page online and i did some of your things you taught you have one on feedback forms and i added it in my web page but you know what i can't get it to go to my e-mail address. i had added the front page extension on my web page but it say's that i still need one im using ms front page 2000 so can you tell me why this doesn't work like yours does in your lesson..
Richard Rost on 3/13/2008: If you followed all of my examples to the letter, it should work just fine. If there are problems with your FrontPage Server Extensions, thats something your Internet Provider is probably going to have to fix. Contact your ISP and tell them your Extensions aren't working right. 99% of the time when a student tells me this, it's on the Server end.
Alonzo Dock on 12/5/2014: you comment on certain pages is there a handbook with this course

Reply from Alex Hedley:

There isn't for this seminar but the FrontPage Beginner/Intermediate courses do.
